Trail Run

Lockdown Fastpacking

12th December 2020

Lockdown Fastpacking - Tier 3 lockdown escape!

FASTPACKING: "Combining the speed of trail running with the ultralight overnight gear of a trekker to move fast and light, usually over wild terrain & with an overnight camp."

A two day 50k fastpacking trip based from my home (North Somerset). With not many options, I headed out my front door with my rucksack packed and started running. I enjoyed a 25k run, mostly in the dark taking in the coast path before returning home to camp in my garden (lockdown rules prevented me camping anywhere else). I got up early the next day for another 25k run, with lots of mud and sunrise.

I tested out some new kit including a camp mattress and GoPro lighting setup (reviews in a future video).
